A Modest Proposal
With California's highest court ruling that denying same-sex couples the right to marry is unconstitutional and with the majority of the California populace polling in favor of the expanding matrimonal benefits beyond mixed sex pairs, with New York State ready to recognize the paperwork and send hoardes of love-struck, sun seeking tourists flooding in, isn't it time for the Church of Tina to consider going legit?
Consider this. There is a seldom seen room at the Coral Sands that Ruby uses to store years of paperwork, guarded treasure and the High Holy Altar of the Church of Tina, a room in which few but IRS agents, well vetted collectors and devoted C.O.T. followers have been. This room has glass doors that open to a monastic walled garden and widows simply crying out for stained glass. That, an organ and a wet bar would be all the location needs to be turned into the perfect pilgrimage site. (Anyone care for a Sacramental Sacramento Stinger?)
With a quick and painless visit to the website of the Universal Life Church our motelier could become a credentialed minister, a talented costumier friend could whip up the proper frock and The Coral Sands Church of Tina Wedding Chapel could become a reality, with her holiness Sista Rube heading the pulpit.
Is it just me, or is this the right place AND the right time?
Let the REAL Rapture begin.
